“If he wins and becomes No. 1, it's going to be well deserved,” Djokovic said. “He's played fantastic this year. He's been so consistent. If he wins, he wins. There's nothing I can do about it. The best player will win this tournament. I'm out.”
“The last couple years, he didn't win a major, but he was in a couple of finals and [was] always [in the] semi-finals. He's always playing close matches,” said Djokovic. “This is tennis. He was so dominant, and then you had Nadal who made a great rivalry with him. Then myself, Murray, a couple other players who were young and who started believing they can win against him. That's what I think makes this era right now in men's tennis very interesting.”
“It's been a long five, six months for me. I didn't have much rest,” said Djokovic. “Now I'm going to take some time off and really try to keep my mind off tennis. Then of course, coming back to Olympics, which I'm looking forward to.
“The Olympic Games are pinnacle of all sports. I'm really looking forward to playing here and see how it looks during the Olympic Games, how the grass will look, as well. [I will] try to enjoy every single moment of it.”
